I've been pondering the thought of adding some sort of a camper bed to my Kart for some time now .
I recently had the chance of upgrading my kart and so started the search again for various options .
The two main styles available on the market are the ever popular rooftop campers and the Kamprite tent/cot.

I swayed from the rooftops for the main reason that they are considerably heavy for my smallish kart.
Scrolling through Gumtree these past couple of weeks presented me with the opportunity to pick up a Kamprite Tent/cot at a reasonable price .
A quick measuring up before laying down dollars gave me some assurity it would have no issues fitting the kart.
I'm fairly certain the Rooftops are a similar base size when folded up , but are a bit more weightier.

With a few days off and rain forecast for the region, I opted to take the kart down to our local reserve for a test run .

This is how it went.


This is the Kamprite in the Double cot size which weighs only 23kg .


Surprisingly comfy , considering it comes with a 2" inch foam mattress.


The outer legs required some additional extensions to provide support to the ground . ( el cheapo fix - a $10 broom handle did the job ).



Rain cover to suit as well.


After a brief 10 minute set up , it was time to sit back and relax . Cheers

thanks Charlie .
My wife still enjoys the outdoor camping experience , however her ability to rough it on the cold hard ground has wained somewhat with health issues .
Hopefully this option gives her a chance to continue the adventures.

Nice setup Ed, I presume you mount that instead of the pod?

Thats correct Will.
Once I remove the pod, I can increase the box frame underneath , then mount the Kamprite on top.

Must be pretty noisy in there at speed. Very Happy

Just kidding. That looks like a pretty cool setup.
